Tomah, Wisconsin (PRWEB) June 04, 2015
For anyone looking for an extraordinary summer experience the Greater Tomah Area Chamber of Commerce and Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Monroe County Agricultural Society are bringing the National Tractor Pullers Association’s Budweiser Dairyland Super National Truck and Tractor Pull to Tomah. This event draws over 60,000 fans and tourists to Tomah for the annual event which features a cash prize of over $200,000. The event is so well attended that motels and campgrounds in the greater Tomah area are booked a year in advance.
Tomah is a premier event on the NTPA Championship Pulling Circuit for pullers and their fans, as well as festival lovers in general. Celebrating its 40th birthday this year, the Tomah Tractor Pull is one of the country's most prestigious competitions, and has won "Pull of the Year" over 20 times.
The “Puller's Dinner” is hugely popular with contestants and their guests. At the dinner, tourists and fans mingle in the flea market and craft show, or treat themselves to cotton candy, beer, and Wisconsin bratwursts while visiting some of the dozens of vendors who work the event.
But it is the two tracks that hold the heart and steal one's breath. The double track is built of clay laced with lime, which prevents the surface from becoming too slick or too hard. It is known as a tough, power track, able to withstand the speed and pounding of today's muscle machines. The tracks were completely renovated in 2007.
This year's competition includes six sessions, beginning Thursday, June 25th. The Tomah Pull is the only event on the NTPA circuit that hosts every division of competition-twelve--with each division hooking twice. This event is the only Truck and Tractor Pull ever aired live on national TV. TNN broadcasted the pull live in 1997 and 1998. It is also featured on the RFD Channel again this year.
The Monroe County Agricultural Society, the founding organization of the Budweiser Dairyland Super National Tractor Pull, has brought on board more than twenty local organizations to help with the operation of this now nationally recognized event.
